Community Service in Fort Worth

Where Can I Do Community Service in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Texas?

Community Service

Individuals facing criminal offenses often ask where they can volunteer to do community service in Fort Worth. The answer depends primarily on why you are in need of community service hours. Are you completing hours at the request or requirement of your attorney, the prosecutor, probation, or court as part of a pre-trial diversion program? Each entity may have a different preference as to where you volunteer.

A good rule of thumb is to volunteer at a registered non-profit organization. These are almost universally accepted in courts in Tarrant County. It is important that each time you volunteer, you keep a record of your hours.  Request verification from the organization. A verification letter should be on the organization’s letterhead, have a date, include the total hours that you have completed, and include the name, title, and contact information for someone who can verify your attendance.

Below you will find a list of some of our favorite non-profit agencies that allow individuals to volunteer when they have pending legal matters.
